Organiser Pathways Level 4: Craft of Organising
The Craft of Organising course is a two-part course for experienced organisers that further develops participants’ skills and knowledge in organising theory and practice, in the context of the current workplace relations system.
Responding with Compassion – FDV Leave Training
Family and domestic violence is a national crisis, and by becoming a legislated leave entitlement, Paid Family and Domestic Violence leave will actively save lives. As unionists we have a responsibility to understand the changes so we can help create safe workplaces and support those who need to access leave.
Power at Work: Next Steps for Delegates
Do you want to leave your workplace union stronger than you found it? This course builds on what you learned in Core Skills for Delegates to step up your skills to build union power at your workplace.
Working with Unions: Superannuation
This is a foundational course designed specifically for staff in the profit-to-member superannuation and finance sectors that enhances participants’ understanding of how industry funds, Australian unions and their members are working together. Working with Unions: Superannuation also gives participants a grounding in Australian union history, the values that underpin unionism and issues facing the movement today.
Sociology for Unionists
Whatever role you play at your union, understanding our social reality can help ground your work. The course introduces you to Liberation Sociology, a framework that will equip you with practical tools to engage in liberation for all those who experience exclusion and exploitation because of class, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, disability, and age.
Working for Unions
Unions play a distinct role advocating for workers’ interests. Everything a union does is for the benefit of its members and working people, but to win real change, unions must maintain a high standard for corporate governance and accountability. This course will improve your understanding of what unions are, who they represent, and the steps they need to take to operate effectively in accordance with the Fair Work Act.
Certificate of Executive Management & Development for Union Leaders
The Certificate of Executive Management and Development comprises core modules, electives and masterclasses purposefully contextualised for Union Leader needs, equipping them with the practical skills and capabilities to lead in an accelerating and complex world.
Handling Grievances in the Workplace
This course builds on the skills introduced in our Core skills for Delegates. As a workplace delegate, you will often play the role of problem solver, and at times need to step in to negotiate productive outcomes at the workplace level.
Whether you’re an Official, Organiser or Industrial Officer, a comprehensive understanding of Australia’s industrial relations system will enhance your ability to deliver positive change on behalf of the workers you represent.
Lead Organiser Development Program
The Lead Organiser Development Program aims to build the skills of organisers who supervise other organising staff. Refine your planning skills and explore various systemic models of supervision and management.
